I am using 2.3.3

I installed the latest ecommerce first, then the Payment module next, everything went well, no problems, however, the paypal option does not show up on the checkout page.

Anyone have some ideas as to what I am missing? Are there any options in the editor for paypal, or does everything get setup in the code files?

I'm using ss 2.3.7 and ecommerce v0.5.4
I enabled the paypal option by following the instructional documentation here

by adding this to mysite/_config.php
// Define which payment methods your site uses.
'ChequePayment' => 'Cheque Or Pay On Site',
'PayPalPayment' => 'PayPal (Credit Card)'

but getting a few errors when trying to configure the rest of paypal with my account information.
The PayPalPayment class thats packaged with the ecommerce plugin doesn't seem to be complete.
There is this old one form about 2 years ago it seems, which I don't think is compatible any more

the setup method outlined here is also a little out dated it seems
the following methods to set your account emails don't exist
if(Director::isLive()) {
} else {

..... It shouldn't be that hard to configure paypal, I'll try and suss it out.
